Channel: Zakir Naik
This will inshallah be the last question
before we end the session, this question is from Isha
from gereken, India, I am born in the Hindu family, but from the past few years I am a Muslim Alhamdulillah my family's absolutely anti Muslims. And after this Corona and Jamaat incidents, the hatred for Muslims have doubled. I met a boy three and a half years back. He is a Muslim by bata hamdulillah. He gave me the knowledge about Islam and Allah gave me the hedaya and I became a Muslim by heart and soul. Now I want to marry him so that I can follow Islam and inshallah I will.
But till the time I'm here at my parents house, I have to face many troubles like I have to hurt the cruel words against Muslims. they criticize Muslims, they say bad things about Muslims. They forced me to eat Prasad. They scold me when I do a job, they scold me when I say good things about Muslims, they stopped me from fasting. They actually don't know that I'm a Muslim now. But they have hints. They put question on my character and many other things. What should I do till the time I'm here? Third, the boy I want to marry who gave me the knowledge about Islam never forced me to convert. My family members see news channels such as Aztec and Republic TV, and they keep on criticizing my
religion, Islam. They are hardcore, BJP puppets. Regarding the reply to your question sisters, Allah says in the Quran in surah, forcella, chapter number 41, verse number 34, that repel evil with goodness, you may never know the person in whose heart is evil, he will become your friend, the person who is your enemy, he will become your friend. So Allah advises repel evil with goodness. So even though your family members are against you, they are cursing you that criticizing you. They're attacking the Muslims. You are the good Muslim, and I congratulate you that I have accepted Islam. May Allah support you, you as a good Muslim should respect your parents to respect your family
members. If they are against you, you have to be better. You have to be kind to them. You have to be merciful for them. That would say what kind of doctor is this? We are attacking her back incising she's yet kind she's yet loving. You have to love your mother more. You have to love your father more. You have to love your brother move. And they should find a marked difference between Isha what was before becoming a Muslim and Nisha, after she's become a Muslim, you should obey them. Only those things what they tell you which is against Quran and the Sunnah against the commandments of Allah and the thing of the Prophet masala Salam against the Sharia. Those are the only things you
have to obtain from Allah says in the Quran, in Surah lukeman, Chapter 31, verse number, 14, and 15. And step number 29, verse number eight, that you have to be kind to your parents. But if the parents do jihad, strive and struggle to make you worship somebody else besides Allah, then don't obey them. So only this time when they asked you to do share it, do idol worship, don't obey them, when they force you to have prasar, don't obey them, politely refuse them, don't be rude to them. And there should be a marked difference in your behavior.
Love them. Even if they criticize you, then I would request you that ask your friend, what you close to Islam and confirm that does he want to marry you?
You may never know. He bought too close to Islam. He didn't force you, but asked him directly. Do you want to marry me? And how long will you take to marry? Ask a direct question don't feature. If he says it's a few months, no problem. If it takes too long, to tell him that I cannot practice for long Islam in my family. So to see to it that you have to tell him to talk to his parents and finalize the marriage as soon as possible. And if he's trying to give excuses, no, I will give you the answer after three years after four years, then give him an ultimatum. You give me the answer within a few days or a couple of weeks when I go to marry and see to it that it is very soon in the
next few months. Maximum a few more months, but don't delay it too much. If you find that he's not very firm, I would advise you look for someone else who is a good Muslim, or convince him to marry you fast and marry this person according to the Sharia taking the permission of his parents. Inform your parents in the moment he agrees that you have become Muslim. You are an adult you have a right to choose your life partner and hamdulillah after
You tell your parents that you have become a Muslim, it becomes your duty that you have to do our to them. But see to it that don't behave rude with them. If they are rude to you, you should not be rude to them because paradise lies beneath the feet of your mother. Your mother may not be in Paradise, but your paradise lies beneath the feet of your mother. Be kind to her. Be respectful to her. And it's your duty that you can then give my talks on similarities between Islam and Hinduism and other lectures of mine. Slowly slowly talk to them, only when you talk to them and you speak to them nicely kindly with love and affection. And I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that may give Daya to
your parents and all your family members. So that all of you inshallah, tenant agenda
